Azzeddine Toufiqui (born 25 April 1999) is a French professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Ligue 2 club Stade Malherbe Caen.[1]

Career[edit]

Toufiqui spent a major part of his youth career in the academy of Caen before joining Paris Saint-Germain in 2015. From 2017 to 2019, he was part of club's reserve squad which played in Championnat National 2.[2] In February 2019, he was called up to senior team's matchday squad twice by Thomas Tuchel, but failed to get any playing minutes.[3][4]

On 31 August 2019, Toufiqui's former club Caen announced his signing on a three-year deal.[5][2] He made his professional debut two weeks later on 13 September, in a 2–1 loss against Troyes.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Born to a Moroccan father and an Algerian mother in France, Toufiqui is eligible to represent all three countries.[7] He is the younger brother of former French youth international Sabri Toufiqui.[8]
